That, and not a desire to speculate on what a future Labour government's tax policies might be, is the rationale behind our recent series of pre- election tax planning seminars. Far from wishing to frighten our clients into taking action (leading article, 9 April) KPMG believes its duty lies in advising its clients and others of the tax implications of a number of possible post-election scenarios, not just those of a Labour administration.
As professional tax advisers, that is our clear and obvious responsibility and one which we, as a strictly apolitical firm, have routinely undertaken in the run-up to previous general elections.
